When questioned regarding the performance of SARAWI, Jockey N Callow stated that
he was instructed to get a good jump, sit midfield and make his move at the 600M. He
said that SARAWI was slow into stride and shortly after the start, SARAWI steadied off
the heels of LEGAL LORD which rolled outwards. He further stated that near the
800M, his mount commenced to race keenly and steadied off the heels of RECORD
TIME which rolled inwards, and when he made his move near the 600M, his mount only
responded moderately and he was forced to cover extra ground. He further said that
when he asked for an effort in the home straight, he felt that SARAWI was not striding
out freely and as such, he decided to ease his mount down over the concluding stages of
the race. His explanation was noted. SARAWI was impounded.
